I had to go and get a consultation and a typhoid vaccine, in preparation for going to the Cape Verde islands, at a new place today. The nurse was going over medical risks in the area, stuff I might need to know, etc. When she told me I should bring my own pads and tampons because they're hard to get there, I told her I'd just started using a menstrual cup. She didn't know what they were, so I just pulled it out of my purse and told her about it. Hopefully, she'll tell other patients. It's a place that gets you up to date on shots and meds for travel, so I'm sure her patients could use it.

Good job :) the way I see it, if you reach just one more person, you've already done a good deed, but if someone like this could share knowledge about MCs....!

A couple of years ago, I got to meet a lot of doctors, nurses and lab techs while they tried to figure out why I was having a period non-stop for over a year. (Fibroids and hormones.) I played a lot of Show and Tell with the "spare cup" in my purse. (It's one that never really fit me right so I carry it in case of emergency and to show others.) I turned a lot of medical personnel on to cups. :o) My Gyno and her Nurse Practitioner were particularly enthusiastic. Both have thanked me for the link to the Size Charts.
